Howdy Parents,

This week @ VIBE we are continuing our study in James.  We will be in chapter 3, and talking about the good old tongue and the power that our words can have.  This passage is always a convicting one to read and teach on!  How often do you really think about the power of our words and the things that we say to people?  Sometimes we need to be reminded of the power our words can have on people.   The Bible is very clear that it is so hard to tame the tongue.  It is a powerful thing.  It is a powerful force both for good and for bad!  James 3:9, “with the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.”  This bipolar aspect to the tongue is something we will have to battle!  Only by the Spirit will this be possible.  If we seek to glorify God in our relationships we will have to learn to build others up with our words.  I am excited to walk through this with the students, and challenge them to glorify God with their words!

We have some exciting things coming up at VIBE!
